Hindu nationalist protesters doused Chairman of the Observer Research Foundation Mumbai Sudheendra Kulkarni in ink before he arrived at a book launch event with former Pakistani foreign minister and author Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri in Mumbai, Monday. Giving the press conference with his face smeared with black ink, he told the media at the city's Nehru planetarium that he was attacked in front of his home by members of the Hindu nationalist regional political party Shiv Sena. Shiv Sena had reportedly planned a protest against Kulkarni for hosting the book launch event with the Pakistani politician in Mumbai, but cancelled the protest after Chief Minister of Maharashtra state Devendra Fadnavis intervened. They also reportedly tried to make the Nehru planetarium cancel the event. Shiv Sena representatives claim that their criticism of the event is based on the Pakistani government's alleged connection to terrorism. Kasuri's book, "Neither a hawk nor a dove: An insider's account of Pakistan's foreign policy", contains an analysis of the several Kashmir conflicts between India and Pakistan. The book's author is considered to have played a vital role in solidifying the peace process between the two states.
